Texas police motorcycle certification course aims to improve officers’ safety

Braking speeds of 55 mph are implemented with appropriate-length braking chutes

In Texas as well as some other states, there are currently no training requirements for police motorcycle personnel. Consequently, as long as an officer, deputy or trooper has a Class M license, he or she could be asked to perform as a motorcycle officer – arguably the most dangerous job in police work.

In an effort to reduce the frequency of such occurrences and provide suitable training to equip motorcycle officers, police leaders in Texas developed the Law Enforcement Motor Standard (LEMS). Learn more here.
